The second half of Zooropa sucks ass...and it ends with the worst U2 song of all time so I'm going with RAH.

Zooropa. It's creative genious. I also used to think that the second half of Zooropa was weak (Some Day's Are better Than Others I still can't listen to), but now I really appreciate Dirty Day and The Wanderer.

Both are really good albums. But the guts U2 showed with Zooropa has to be admired. They created their best work with Achtung baby, yet they still decided to go in a new direction with the next album, rather than stick with a successful formula. And in my opinion it worked.

Zooropa, Numb, Stay and The Wanderer are amazing.

But so to are Desire, Hawkmoon, God Part II and All I Want Is You. R&H doesn't deserve the flack it gets, although four non-U2 tracks and 3 live versions from previous albums means it doesn't flow as it should.

Agree 100%.

Zooropa, but I still have a lot of love for Rattle and Hum. All I want is you, heartland,desire and God Part 2 are some of their best songs. VDL is beautiful too, I wish Edge would do another lead vocal like that.

As has been said before R&H has much stronger studio songs:

Heartland, Hawkmoon, God Part II, Angel of Harlem, Desire,

Zooropa's only strong point is that the songs flow better IMO.
